well if you make a BIG pot of stew, you'll have some great leftovers. my friend Meg and I call this "money in the ban" when we have a freezer with individually frozen dinners like beef stew, chili, etc. ooh, I'm thinking it's almost time for some Brunswick stew. I could take some frozen down to my mom.

somebody named Doug something or other started following me on Twitter today. My heart sank when I realized it wasn't our cute lil' Dugger.

It was nice hearing from debb. how often do you two talk?

Doris, you might want to join this Group

I look at it this way: you've learned how we do things here on TuDiabetes, you're learning on Twitter, now FB, it's all going to make you turn into a computer geek with a plastic pencil protector pocket!

hey Doris, have fun over there on FB, it's not happening for me. Jeremiahtren's surgery is at 10AM this morning, let's all think strongly of her, and pray also for the doctors and nurses working on her.

Dont worry...the eye patch is temporary. Usually it is suggested to people with diplopia - result of the misalignment of the two eyes relative to each other. It can be corrected by an eye patch, corrective lenses or therapy. Now you will know how pirates feel...=) sorry...didnt mean to make a jooke of it. You will be just fine!

Who goes to court today???

I have not been on twitter that much. I have been hidding out.

Did you catch me in time for what?
At 12:20pm on October 4, 2010, Marie B said…
ok, dye your hair already! I stopped doing mine when I moved out of California.

no, I've never been suggested an eye patch. I've been wearing glasses since I was about 10. one of my eyes is so nearsighted they can only correct it so far. without glasses I can only see the big E on the eye chart and with glasses, I don't make it to where they have 4 letters. If my other eye were that bad, they'd take away my driver's license. maybe you might want to call the eye doctor, and talk to him, or at least ask them if they can put you on the cancellation list, so you could get in there a little earlier.

Ed's a1c was 6.3 so he beat me, but he's got some other new issues that are somewhat worrisome to me. also my bp is up and he's changing my meds for that. my mother has been a never-ending source of tremendous stress and guilt on me.
At 7:45am on October 4, 2010, Marie B said…
hi Doris, you take it easy today girl. I'm off to the doctors in about 15 minutes with eddie. we'll see who's got the best a1c. I already know mine is 6.8

I'll catch up this afternoon. a lot going on here.
